We had been on a bad frozen waffle habit for a long time. For a quick weekday breakfast, we would grab a box, toast them, and wolf them down. It didn't take too much time..alot of kids ate them plain out the toaster..no syrup, no butter, just like a pieces of plain bread (weird, yes?) Well, we decided to kick the frozen waffles to the curb. No more. We have actually saved some money, which is nice. But, this leaves me with several days during the week filling in the breakfast menu. Enter...quick bread!
In my quest, I found this bread from Mel's Kitchen Cafe. Her post not only has the recipe, but, a lovely idea of giving the dry ingredients in a jar for a gift. Very cute! Labels included. Check them out..adorable.
For breakfast, snack or dessert, or a gift..this bread is perfectly delicious.
1-1/3 cup flour
2/3 oats, rolled or old fashion
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
